In this Comment, we draw on the results of the ELPAR article selection process to report on trends in environmental legal scholarship for academic years 2008-2014. We find that although the precise totals varied from year to year, more than 400 environmental law articles were published each year during this period. Additionally, this Comment provides data on the topics covered in the environmental law articles reviewed by the ELPAR staff. The goal is to provide an empirical snapshot of the environmental legal literature and to track trends over time.
